Lewis-Palmer coach Susan Odenbaugh led the Rangers to their third 4A state volleyball title in four years, and then as convincing as her team's 29 straight wins, deflected any and all personal credit.
"It's not anything I've really done as a coach," said Odenbaugh, who has won four titles in 15 seasons as coach. "It's obviously the caliber of athlete that I get. The kids are very, very talented, very skilled, they know volleyball very well."
The Rangers only needed a fourth set four times and never needed a fifth in one of the state's most dominating volleyball seasons.
They beat eventual 3A champ Eaton and 5A winner Fossil Ridge, and also swept Cheyenne Mountain twice after the Indians beat them in the 2015 finals. To cap it off, they had a quick win over Holy Family in a one-sided championship match.
The 29-0 record? Just a product of hard work, the team says.
"Coach Odenbaugh quite often said we don't need to win every single set," senior Elizabeth Reich said. "It was about playing our hardest and playing to our potential."
Lewis-Palmer has had five straight seasons of 20-plus wins.
It finished this year ranked fourth in the nation, according to the Xcellent 25's end-of-the-season rankings.
"To be recognized in the nation like that is a real honor for the girls," Odenbaugh said.
